Right-hander Esmerling Vasquez will make his debut with the Twins as he heads to the hill Sunday afternoon. The Twins will try to complete the three-game sweep in Kansas City, but without Josh Willingham.
Twins General Manager Terry Ryan tells the Star Tribune the team wants to keep the outfielder off his left leg because of a slightly sore hamstring.
The Twins will face Royals righty Luis Mendoza.
The bats of Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau helped the Twins win both games against the Royals in the day-night doubleheader on Saturday.
